More Pages for the Pregnancy Album

This first one is of the girls' nursery (which happens to be my favorite room in the house).  The room and page has a butterfly theme and this layout was an absolute joy to create!  It's an 8x8 layout using DCWV's Citrus paper pack (my whole pregnancy album uses these gorgeous papers!).

Here's the sketch from Let's Scrap that I used:

This layout will be placed in the last page in my pregnancy album (though it's not yet completely done).  I adore this picture of the girls in the hospital.together.  The punch that I used on the edges of the photo mat is one of my favorites.

For My Pregnancy Album - Twin Shower

This is an 8x8 double layout for my pregnancy album about our twins' baby shower.  It's based on two Let's Scrap sketches (one side from each).  I really love glitter paper, though it can be hard to adhere things too.  The flowers and leaves are from punches.  Being a smaller layout, I tried to keep it simple.

Twin Shower! Celebrating our girls.

The church, along with my Mom, hosted a lovely baby shower for us and our twin girls!  It was truly wonderful and we felt very blessed to be surrounded by so many supportive family and friends.  I created these layouts for the church album, I will likely do another set later for our family album.

I really enjoyed playing with this sketch, but tried to limit the embellishment so that it wouldn't be too bulky.  Here's the Let's Scrap sketch that I used:

6th and 7th Months of My Twin Pregnancy!

I've finally had time to get caught up on my Twin Pregnancy Album with these two latest layouts.  They are 8x8s instead of my usual 12x12s.

I purposely kept these layouts simple, so the focus is where it should be...on the photos!

Here is the Let's Scrap sketch I used:

I primarily used the right side, shifting things around as needed.  I love the simplicity of this sketch, very easily adaptable!

Poking Fun

Another old set of pictures of my daughter.  In these, she's badgering our rat terrier, Stryder, while he patiently tolerates her.

I purposely kept this layout simple, just a little pattern paper and a 3 layered flower.  The pictures are a little dark and I used lighter papers to make the white and pink in the photos pop.

Riding High...

I found these adorable pictures of my now 6 year old daughter when she was 13 months old and just had to scrap them.

(Sorry for the poor picture, it's late)

The journaling says "Chloe loves her ride-on toy and had a blast showing off for Mimi & Pappy."

The title says, "Riding High."

5 Months - Baby Names

This layout is about my 5th month experience with the twins' movements and the names that we considered and the ones we ended up choosing:

I really enjoyed creating the heart banners and doing the stitching.

4 Months and TWO Girls!

This layout is of my 4 month picture with the cravings I've experienced and the ultrasounds that showed us we are expecting two girls!!

I had so much fun with this layout, particularly finding a way to make the two pages coordinate even though they have different patterned papers.  The hardest part was stitching through 4 layers of paper.

First Trimester and 12 Week Ultrasound

This two page layout is of my first trimester experiences and the 12 week ultrasound of the twins.

The picture is a tad blurry because I took it inside in the evening (bad lighting).

My favorite part of this layout is doing the butterfly trails with pen stitching.  I hand made the background shape for both sides because I did not have a stencil that size.

Here's the Let's Scrap sketch I used:

First Picture...TWINS!

This is page 2 of my pregnancy album and is my twins' first picture!

I printed the scripture with my computer onto the card stock and used stickers for the bottom title.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the borders.

Baby on Board

After a long hiatus due to moving our whole family, I finally am settled enough to jump back into my scrapbooking!

This page is the title page for my 8x8 pregnancy scrapbook, chronicling my current pregnancy with TWINS!

I created the paper pieced pregnant form from a sketch that I drew:

of a chipboard shape I saw online.

I used the 1-30-13 Let's Scrap sketch:

I liked the large images dominating one side with the smaller blocks on the other.
